Re: Help with the given name "Kuna" (from Belarus) #belarus #names

To the original poster - 

What are your great grandmother's names on her gravestone, in English and in Hebrew/Yiddish? Those should provide some useful information. 

Here in the US, did she go by Kuna in everyday life and is that her name on census records?

Also - was she getting a visa at the US consulate in Riga?
